Live to our Central London studio and James MacColl from the Campaign for Better Transport. It seems we hear a story about rail companies not doing enough to tell customers about compensation. Why does it pop up every couple of months? Nothing seems to happen about it. The vast majority of people who are eligible for compensation don't, that is the reason it keeps coming up.

A nearly year-long standoff at Standing Rock between Native Americanwater protectors” and U.S. military engineers has ended, after state and local police evicted the last of the protesters. Police teams began to move into the Oceti Sakowin camp near Cannonball, N.D. around mid-morning Thursday, working to clear buildings of the several dozen protesters who remained. Shortly after two p.m. and some four dozen arrests later, they declared their job was done. “Symbolically the closing of the camp was a tough day for the water protectors, the tribes and those across the world standing in solidarity with Standing Rock,” said Phillip Ellis, a spokesman for Earthjustice, the nonprofit environmental law organization representing the Standing Rock Tribe in its challenges against the pipeline. The Dakota Access Pipeline, owned by Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), was designed to transport a half a million barrels of crude oil a day more than 1,600 kilometers from the Bakken oilfields in northwest North Dakota to refineries and other pipelines in Illinois.

The Bill, introduced in Parliament in August last year, has since been referred to a parliamentary standing committee. "Once cleared, any innovation in transport sector such as semiautonomous and fully autonomous vehicles, both passenger and commercial, could be tested in India," said the official cited above. Such tests will require the permission of the transport department of the union roads ministry, the person said. While conditions are currently not conducive for driverless cars in the country, the changes will help prepare the ground, said Abdul Majeed, partner at PwC. "May be in future, semi-autonomous or autonomous technology can find applications in limited scale in the farm sector or on fixed routes in the public transportation space. There will not be regulatory hurdles in those instances," said Abdul Majeed of PwC. Globally, carmakers and technology companies including Tesla Motors, China's Baidu, Google, Uber, Mercedes, Ford and General Motors are working on driverless cars, which are already being tested on city roads across the world.
